The Music Paradigm: Demonstrating Relevance and Building Audience Through the Power of Music and Metaphor

ROOM 24

During his years as music director of the Jacksonville and Stamford symphonies, Roger Nierenberg realized that many important community leaders didn’t feel connected to symphonic music. He created The Music Paradigm to illuminate the music and demonstrate its relevance in all corners of the community. The Music Paradigm is now presented worldwide, using music of the great masters to provide organizations—from civic groups to Fortune 500 companies—with fresh insights about driving superior performance, aligning the workforce, and inspiring innovation […]

You may know the buying and donating patterns for your own audience. But do you know how they engage with the other arts organizations in your community? The extent to which you’re in competition with those organizations? The extent to which you could benefit by collaborating with them?

Raise A Glass!

Join us after the Closing Session to toast another successful Conference.

Closing Session (VIDEO)

A quiet revolution has been underway for over a decade as orchestras experiment with ways to create deeper connections with communities. This mostly happens at periphery of our work, carried out by soloists, small ensembles or teaching artists, rather than the full orchestra. Now it’s time to connect what we’re learning by listening to our partners and answering their needs back to our core passion and strength—live symphonic performances that matter deeply to everyone in the room, including community members who normally do not attend.

Opening Session (VIDEO)

Cleveland Public Auditorium- Music Hall

The question of relevance—how our orchestras can matter more in today’s world—burns in the minds of leaders across our field. During the opening plenary, we’ll consider how orchestras can employ the music we make to address community needs. A panel of government, business, community, and artistic leaders will share their perspectives on the priorities of the constituents and stakeholders they serve; how orchestras can help provide what the public values; and how we can develop relationships with the community that enable us to be involved in meaningful ways.

Constituency Meetings

Every day during Conference you’ll gather together for stimulating meetings with those who best understand the challenges of your position: your peers. Whether you’re working at an orchestra as an executive director, board member, volunteer, staff, or musician, there is learning designed specifically for you.

Making Music that Matters

ROOM 26B

The creation and presentation of great music is central to orchestras’ work. We are driven to share this music with others because we have experienced its transformative power. Yet to many Americans, our music seems irrelevant. Can the artistic choices we make—about what music to create and perform, when and where to play, and for and with whom—change their minds? Across the country […]

The Public Benefits and Value of Arts & Culture

ROOM 25C

In 2014, Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, Northeastern Ohio’s public arts agency, commissioned a study of the public benefits of arts and culture. Public funding for the arts depends on a broad recognition of a positive return on public investment. Not surprisingly, the research found that the arts and culture do generate substantial public benefits. It also found, though, that public value is […]
